Updates From WA Wolf Group Confab

Important updates on this week’s Wolf Working Group meeting in Ellensburg were filed by the Yakima Herald-Republic and Associated Press.

The citizen panel is looking at the latest revisions to the state’s draft wolf management plan.

Scott Sandsberry of the Yakima daily reports that “six of its 17 members remain ‘unable to live with’ the wolf numbers called for in the draft plan,” while Shannon Dinniny of the AP reports that Conservation Northwest’s representative said, “If the numbers go below 15 breeding pairs, this plan won’t have public support and it’s going to fall apart. Maybe that’s what some people want, but I don’t think that’s a good option for the state and for the overall goal of delisting and recovery.”

Also, Sandsberry blogs about the search for large canids in the Teanaway not far the meetings.

Wish I could blog more on this, but I’ve got work to do.
